Ching Chong

I guess it's not just fifth graders who do this. The Spanish basketball team does it, too. See NYT article.

I was so crazy pissed about this and now I'm just bummed out. (I'm also coming off the heels of an annoying racist incident at the Iowa State Fair, committed by someone who may not have been an Iowan, so I don't want to impugn what is probably a fine state that happens to serve delicious snacks at their state fair). Seems the Chinese are not nearly as offended as Asian-Americans. I was shocked to read that, but then I reasoned that Chinese people living in China probably never had anyone do this to them, because they've always been surrounded by other Chinese people.

Since when has Spain been so oblivious?
